Roses from Our Garden

RRCB 61Grab our button

The card really needs no explanation except for the Retro Rubber challenge. I used Best of Flowers, which retired March 2014 and the sentiment came from Flowering Florets, which retired May 2014.

I used Strawberry Slush ink (retired) for the sentiment. The flowers were colored with the current SU watercolor pencils (Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Calypso Coral). The buttons came from blouses I used to have. The square was die cut from Stitched Shapes Framelits.

The roses are from our in Florida, we get to enjoy them year 'round.

Thanks for looking!
